What people are saying about Puebla

Excellent from start to finish. I was especially pleased with the guide as she made it a point to translate in English equally even though my wife was the only English only speaker in our group of 12. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and I felt like I attended a session of ancient Meso America history and Mexican history. Wish list would have been to have more time at the museum. It was stretched to about 1-1/2. We would have just stayed but we were nearing closing time 5pm.

100% recommended! Especially if you’ve just arrived to Mexico City. The Anthropology museum is amazing whether you enjoy history or not. Kid friendly also. Our guide was simply outstanding, I think his name was Daniel. We had an amazing time, saw and learned a lot.

The tour was spectacular, punctuality, the super attentive guide, good attitude, it's worth it to get to know part of Mexico City
